LOCAL POLICE RECEIVE FUNDING BOOST

Friday February 6, 2015

Member for Mulgoa Tanya Davies and Minister for Police and Emergency Services Stuart Ayres yesterday announced a grant of almost $15,000 to support the important work of police in the Green Valley and St Marys Local Area Commands.

 

Each Command will receive a $5,000 ‘community and policing grant’ component.

 

“The NSW Government recognises the importance of genuine relationships between our police and community, and that is why we have presented this grant to our local police,” Tanya Davies said.

 

“Initiatives may focus on victim support, educational and leisure activities aimed at preventing crime among youth, and activities aimed at preventing violence in the community.

 

“This grant will also assist the Local Area Commander in purchasing equipment for the station that has been needed for some time,” Tanya Davies added.

 

Minister Ayres congratulated local police for the excellent work they do in the Mulgoa area.

 

“We are seeing crime rates trending down across the State, and our outstanding officers are central to this trend,” Mr Ayres said.

 

“Their work is certainly not easy, and we are deeply appreciative of their hard work and dedication.

 

“The NSW Government will continue to support our local police, and this grant is just one way we can show that ongoing support.”
